I had to jump on this story as soon as I saw it. I can only imagine the looks on people’s faces when they read this. Via a tweet from Crossing Broad, and doing some research of my own on the company’s website, former Chicago Cubs slugger, and ambassador of baseball’s steroid error, Sammy Sosa is the CEO and investor of a company that distributes needle-free injection systems.
The irony of a guy who may have shot steroids with a needle having the business acumen to invest in a company that can make using needles pain-free. Sosa and the company released this press release.

This is something interesting to document that doesn't deserve a real post.
I was curious to see what Cubs are "young" for their level. So, what I've done is gone through each minor league system the Cubs contribute to and looked to see if any Cubs are in the Top 10. Here are the results. Note: only prospects who had appreciable time at each level were counted,...
It's not news to anyone, but, last week, Sammy Sosa did not make it into the Hall of Fame. And, for some reason, the 1998 National League MVP felt it his place to comment."Even if we weren’t inducted on our first time," Sosa said via a statement, "we are still winners and there is always a next time."Now, unless Sosa has a mouse in his pocket...I'm...
Sammy Sosa, a guy who hit 609 home runs, retired and then disappeared to the obscurity of Latin America (Miami), has stepped back into society via a suddenly serious social media presence.
For a guy who made $124,000,000 during his baseball career, you’d think that Slammin’ would just sail off into the sunset and whiten his face with cream of pearls.
He started using...
As a Cubs blogger, I think I'm going to have to get down on my knees and thank the good Lord that Sammy Sosa has joined us in the social media world. We've seen his Pinterest page and his Twitter account. He also has a Facebook page littered with the same awesome yellow-sweatered photos as his Pinterest (which @harrypav pointed out were directly pinned from his Flickr account...
The Chicago Cubs should be getting some offers for their
37-year-old outfielder Alfonso Soriano. The Philadelphia Phillies would be a
perfect destination for Soriano considering that they are looking for some
outfield help bad.
KenRosenthal of Fox Sports reports that the Phillies GM Ruben
Amaro is seeking some outfield help to make his team into more of a contender...
Not long after the Cubs hired Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer, the two traded Andrew Cashner and Kyung-Min Na to the Padres for Anthony Rizzo and Zach Cates. Rizzo had just completed his age 21 season with the Padres and to say it didn't go well would be putting it nicely. Still, he had hit well in the minor leagues and obviously Theo and Hoyer loved what this kid had to offer.
Photo By Michael BaronFor the second time in less then a month were hearing that a Scott Hairston decision is imminent. Supposedly Hairston was choosing between the Mets and Yanks with a decision any day but when the Yanks lost interest he decided to wait the market out. Now reports are that Hairston is once again close, is this a ploy to see if he can get that two year 8M contract...
During a recent Cricket match, Brad Haddin blasted a six into the crowd and a spectator came down with one of the best grabs we have seen, especially considering he was carrying an iced coffee and two hamburgers. The spectator is a 16-year old named Peter Spurling who according to the Herald Sun is already being recruited heavily while he plays for his AIS AFL Academy. The catch...
